La Rochelle (France) will be the backdrop to the forthcoming CityMobil events programme. It will take place between 30 and 31 March 2015, and it will consist on a workshop about the socio-economic impact of road transport automation, and the CityMobil2 Reference Group Meeting.

Attendees will have the opportunity to test for free the fully automated minibuses provided by CityMobil 2’s partner Robosoft, which will be circulation along the roads of the French coastal town.

The workshop will be supported by the VRA project and organised in conjunction with the next meeting of the EU-US-JPN tri-lateral automation Working Group meeting.

CityMobil2 is studying the future of various cyber-mobility alternatives in Europe up to the year 2050. The study will research whether the public will accept the move from car ownership to the extended use of shared fleets of driverless vehicles, as well as the economic impact that it would potentially trigget. The resulting background and an online survey carried out among registered attendees will be the basis for the discussions during the workshop.
